"The History of The United States, As Told Through its Vices."

Oct 26, 2018

As a Vice President serving under an obscure President, Wheeler is not a common name in history.  In fact, his own President Rutherford B. Hayes had to ask the question "Who is William Wheeler?" when his name was in consideration.  But as we discuss, perhaps he should be known more.  His frankness, disdain for corruption, and love of nature made him a unique and well-liked politician. 

We speak with Herb C. Hallas, author of William A. Wheeler, Political Star of the North Country on this episode.  And we enjoy music from Lee Rosevere and Chris Novembrino.  Remember to sign up for the podcast, and give us a review if you would.
